Jillian here. Happy New Year! Since last we visited, I had a book release (the weekend of Christmas which was not my choice of dates), a birthday, the passing of the old year and lots of ball games were played.
My husband is a huge– and by huge, I mean massive– Alabama football fan. He gets pretty rabid about them. They played in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on New Year’s Day and there was much yelling and carrying on in my house. He’s actually pretty comical. Like crazy-comical. Then Bama played in the national championship game on the 8th and he was even worse, if that’s even possible. I had to ask him if he was going to have a stroke but he said he needed to get bent out of shape over every play in order to help them win (!?!?!).
I’m also a football fan but my team of choice is Liverpool. Yep, a different kind of football. They played on New Year’s Day as well but I am much more circumspect with my cheering than the spouse. 🙂
My birthday was the 28th and I lounged around doing whatever I wanted all day. I rarely indulge myself like that and I enjoyed it immensely. 🙂
I had a book come out on the 23rd of December. It’s called Cowboy Boots on the Ground. It has a secret room like in The House of the Seven Gables. I visited Salem in October before I wrote this story of NaNoWriMo a couple of years ago and wanted to use that room. It was pretty cool. Link to book.
Here’s hoping we all have a superb 2018. Cheers, Salud, Proost, l’chaim, Here’s tae ye, slainte! Hobbes always has a blast playing in the Christmas paper. He looks like he had too much holiday cheer, doesn’t he?
